synopsis:


Kenna has seventy-two hours of mandatory psych evaluation to think about that one cut—the one she needed to feel alive and that began her downward spiral. Told in searingly powerful verse, these are the most harrowing and moving seventy-two hours you’ll read about.To Kenna, everything is a potential tool for self-harm: a razor blade, a safety pin, a pencil eraser rubbed fast against her skin.When Kenna is found cutting herself in the school bathroom—with the blade from her pencil sharpener—she’s put under a psychiatric watch for seventy-two hours. In the facility Kenna meets other kids like her: her roommate, Donya, who’s there for her fifth time; the birdlike Skylar; and Jag, a boy cute enough to make her forget her problems…for a moment.In this dark, haunting debut, Madeleine Kuderick creates a vivid world with beautiful, sparse verse that draws you in from page one and stays with you long after you put it down.


MY LORD, I HAVEN'T POSTED IN A LONG WHILE

Hello, everyone!

I have returned from the Cave of Anti-Blogging Solitude and Desolation. It's senior year, people; I mean, what do you expect? I am in 6 AP classes, and my run in the musical AIDA just ended. I'm back!



I plan to start adding reviews again like I used to in the coming months. I have lots of new, shiny books to read and review, and I can't wait to share my opinions with you all!

Let's celebrate my return with:

1) a smexy new blog theme, and

2) a review!

Shall we?
